Team Robespierre and other party-starters rock the F Yeah Tour '08!

June 23, 2008
This is certainly an insanely fun line-up. But what else would you expect from a tour that goes by the name F Yeah! Monotonix, Matt & Kim, Mannequin Men, Crystal Antlers and Team Robespierre are playing the potential party of the year at The Mansion. All these bands are good, but for brevity's sake let's just talk about Team Robespierre.

Brooklyn's Team Robespierre rock the super fun synth-punk, with an emphasis on the punk. Their raw, electric sound reminds me of (broken-up) bands like Q and Not U, El Guapo, and Fugazi (if Fugazi had keyboard players, that is).

These five guys are the perfect band to ask to play when you want to turn your broken-down loft or vacant parking lot into an instant party space. Just have them plug in their guitar, bass and keys and watch them go for it. Fun noise will be made, with all members dishing out vocal jabs.

Team Robespierre utilizes a whole mess of both machine and man-made beats, and you can certainly dance to their thumps. Just don't confuse this with dance-punk. This is more like punk-dance.

You will have a good time at this show. F Yeah!


Team Robespierre play The Mansion with Matt & Kim, Mannequin Men, Monotonix and Crystal Antlers, on Thursday, July 3rd.
